We had such a fun weekend with 'Papa' in the house!
Even though we moved across the country two years ago,
the boys didn't seem to skip a beat in their relationship with Grandpa.
 It was sweet watching my boys with my Daddy. 
He is a wonderful Grandpa...we sure miss this guy!
 In other news...we have had a TON of rain!
It is such a fun change from the dry hot summer--that we are thrilled!
In fact school was cancelled today due the excessive rain! 
Can you believe that?  I swear they look for any excuse to cancel school around here,
but we are NOT complaining:) 
It was so fun to sleep in, relax and read today. 
I love having lazy days in our cozy home.

 And last, but not least, oh my goodness, I am so excited to tell you about the most DIVINE Caramel Banana Cream Pie I made this weekend in celebration of Grandpa being here for Sunday dinner.  It was incredible!  I will share it next Monday on The Sisters Cafe.
Seriously, it was heavenly:)
Recently I have been working on organizing my kitchen pantry, cupboards and drawers.  What a big job, but happily I am almost done and LOVE they way it feels to have order in my kitchen with everything neat and easily accessible.  Now I can actually see and find everything with ease.  BIG improvement, let me tell you!  With a small kitchen, I have to be very organized to maximize the space that I do have.   If you are interested, I will write a post with  the products and ideas that I found that helped. 
What do you think? 

I hope your week is going great!

Did you find that recipe on pinterest? I made it too and thought it was soooooo good! Don't you just love (sometimes I do too much because I don't get anything else done) pinterest? I've seen your name appear a few times to re-pin some of my items, so fun!

I LOVED Those pics of the boys with Dad!!! I miss mom and dad so much too - isn't it wonderful to see your kids all cuddled up with him?! I'm so glad that he was able to come out for the game - what a treat all around! That rain looked crazy - I think I would love some good hard rain with lightening - that does sound fun! :) can't wait for the pie recipe - looks yummy!!

I would love to see pictures and how you organized your kitchen. I am at a lost of how to do it and my kitchen is a mess. Thanks so much.

I loved those pictures of dad with Jack 3, Jack 4, and Jack 5! Does he still call them that now that I have a real Jack? I remember reading Log Fort Adventures with Dad, too. What a blast that dad was able to come visit. I'm jealous! :) I' loved seeing those boys drawings of the rainy day. That is so fun! And I can't wait to make that pie. It is seriously calling my name.
